My Top 5 Bridesmaid Dresses That Flatter All Figures

When you start looking it can be hard to find bridesmaid dresses that flatter all figures. I’m sure that not all of your bridesmaids have a similar figure, skin tone and hair colour, so choosing a dress that will flatter then all can be quite tricky.

I’m lucky in the fact that I’m only having one bridesmaid, my niece, so I don’t have to worry about choosing bridesmaid dresses that will flatter a range of people. But as I was looking at dresses for her, I did think about how hard it is for a bride to be able to please all of their bridesmaids. I love the current trend of having bridesmaids in the same colour but different styles of dress so that they can all choose something they like, but a lot of brides would like to have their maids in matching dresses.

I’ve pulled together five different styles of bridesmaid dresses that I think would flatter a whole host of figures. Hopefully this will give you some inspiration when trying to please all of the girls!

Bridesmaid Dresses 101

  • Pick the colour and fabric that you like, but consider letting your bridesmaids wear different styles that suit them. This way both the bride and the bridesmaids should be happy. Bridesmaid Dresses
  • When looking for dresses try to only go with one or two bridesmaids at first, once you have narrowed down the selection to 2 or 3 options, you can get everyone together to try them on. Trying on Bridesmaid Dresses
  • Ask the bridesmaids opinion, but make the final decision yourself….you’re never going to please everyone and your bridesmaids should be happy if you’re happy.
  • Place all bridesmaids orders at the same time and in the same place to make sure they are all made from the same roll of fabric.
  • Allow at least 3 months for delivery and alteration, you don’t want to panic about them arriving in time.
  • Don’t forget shoes, jewellery and handbags.Bridesmaid shoes
